The New Railway Line is helpful in connecting Bhadrachalam temple with main line in Orissa via Chhattisgarh. Accordingly, the new railway line apart from connecting several new places for the first time with rail facility will be useful for the socio-economic development of the region. It will aid in the passenger movement from Telangana state to Orissa via Chhattisgarh and vice versa and it will boost the multiple sectors like agriculture, business, education, tourism, healthcare, etc.

 

The line also facilitates reducing the distance between deep sea ports (Kakinada) to mines and industries of Orissa & Telangana. This new rail line helps in boosting both passenger and freight transportation.

 

Ministry of Railways has been giving special focus towards rail development in Telangana. Over the past 9 years, the rail budget allocation to the State has been increased by almost 17 times i.e., from Rs. 258 crores in 204-15 to Rs. 4,418 crs. This has led to creation of new rail infrastructure in the State. Over the past nine years, almost 575 kms of rail has been added to the rail network in the State. The sanctioning of Final Location Survey (FLS) FOR 15 New Railway Lines is likely to give further thrust to the rail development in the state.
